Ready Mix Concrete » Additives
At G&C Ready Mix, we carry a range of additives that enhance the performance and appearance of concrete.
We carry additives for a number of applications, including:
- Water Reduction
- Avoiding shrinkage cracking
- Reducing curing time
- Increasing air flow to accommodate for freeze/thaw cycle
The following additives are added to all of our mixes at no additional cost:
Superplasticizers reduce the amount of water in concrete, making it easier to pour and place. The result is a higher quality concrete surface. We apply superplasticizer to all of our concretes to ensure a consistent level of quality.
MasterAir creates small pockets of air within the concrete, allowing rom for expansion and contraction. This features is important in cold climates where freeze/thaw cycles can cause cracking in concrete that doesn’t have any flexibility.
Xypex is a waterproofing additive used for swimming pools, holding tanks, water treatment plants, and other surfaces that typically hold water. Xypex reduces water-related damage by preventing water from penetrating the concrete surface.
Fiber mesh is added to concrete add strength, durability, and a more stable surface.
